Support student wellbeing in schools to improve learning outcomes
How can clinical assessments help?
At Pearson, we’re passionate about supporting students with their learning.
We believe that promoting wellbeing makes a dramatic, positive impact on learning.
Not all students learn at the same pace or in the same way. In fact, research tells us up to 30 percent of students are struggling with their school work – that’s roughly one in three students!
Students with minor learning struggles are often referred directly to a clinician without trying a classroom intervention first. Meanwhile, the child still struggles at school, and the gap in their learning gets wider, and wider and wider.
So how can clinical assessments help bridge the learning gap?
Pearson Clinical offers a range of standardised assessments that qualified special education professionals can use to help identify areas where students are struggling the most.
There’s also a simple approach called Response to Intervention, or RTI for short which can help schools spot struggling students early on and use targeted teaching to help them catch up.

Unlock a child’s learning potential with clinical assessments
Our reliable, norm-referenced clinical assessments will help you:
- evaluate learning difficulties
- guide you towards creating the right intervention strategies or differentiated instruction
The assessment results and data are also helpful for the support team at your school. And if the student ends up needing a referral to a Psychologist, Speech Pathologist or Occupational Therapist, the results may help guide them in their assessment approach.
So, where do you start? Here are 3 key tools available to qualified special educators.
